The Benefits of New York State's Preferred Source Legislation: An Economic Analysis

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

NYS Industries for the Disabled (NYSID) engaged CGR to revisit our 1999 benefit-cost analysis of "preferred source legislation" that encourages state agencies to purchase products from organizations providing employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. CGR weighed the benefit of reduced social service expenditures for NYSID agency clients against the cost of the NYSID program, and found state taxpayers benefit.
